I have looked for a solution to this problem on the internet for about 2 months already, and i have tried many things that have improved my PC performance but not fixed it . Very often my PC will slow down while i am running a program and my CPU will go up to 100% for about half a min or until i force shutdown the application. i have re-installed windows 7 64-bit about 4 times thinking its a virus but the problems continues. i was hoping that someone can walk me threw the steps to fix this problem or at least find out what it is. i know its not my hardware because my computer can run crysis on all high quality.....thats if its working properly at the time. here are my system specs and if you need further information about my PC feel free to ask or tell me how to reveal them to paste here.

Video Card: Nvidia Geforce 9800 GT
Processor : Intel® Core™2 Duo CPU E8400 @ 3.00 GHz
Random access memory (RAM) 5.00 GB
Operating system: Windows 7 Home premium 64-bit

I will appreciate any help and will check back on this post very soon and often.

Can you take a screenshot of your task manager under the processes tab and list all the processes running. Make sure to click the button that says "Show processes from all users" with the little shield next to it.

Hi Tonyy3:

Please respond to the following and someone will assist you:

  • Do you have completely patched system?
  • Do you have Updated Drivers?
  • Do you have any application that you might think would be conflicting?
  • Your Antivirus?
  • Your Firewall?
